is the sensor for the thermocouple located in the right spot in the flame,remove it and if you have access to a propane torch,heat the end till its red hot and leave it connected to the gas valve,then start the unit and this will tell you if the sensor is properly positioned in the pilot flame on the unit itself,if not you could have a defective new thermocouple or another safety device keeping it from staying lit or the gas valve is faulty
Problem is either the thermocouple or the thermoelectric valve. I have one of these as well with the same problem. On mine it is not the thermocouple. I have replaced the thermocoupler and still have the problem. A thermoelectric valve is $42.25 at http://www.masterheaters.com/propane/
Im looking for a cheaper part. Any suggestions? Gru es 1234 @yah oo.c om
Do you have the serial number or the manufacture date? There are some design changes and I would need to know the year of manufacture to assist accurately. Usually it is a relay or the thermocouple connection that will affect the unit staying lit.
First check to see if the flame is hitting the thermocouple when the flame is on when you hold down the button. If it is then remove the the thermocouple and replace with the same size. You should be able to pick one up at your local hardware store.
If when you replace the thermocouple the flame does not stay lit still you may have a bad gas valve. Hope this helps and please rate this!
